“And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:17 And he came - After his resurrection. And preached peace - By his ministers and his Spirit. To you - Gentiles. That were afar off - At the utmost distance from God. And to them that were nigh - To the Jews, who were comparatively nigh, being his visible church.
Eph 2:17 Preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. The Gentiles were "afar off"; the Jews, "nigh". To both Christ preached with each other and with God.
